U.S. Republican Party presidential nominee Donald Trump suggested that gun rights activists could prevent his Democratic Party rival, Hillary Clinton, from altering the balance on the country's Supreme Court. At a campaign event on August 9, Trump said supporters of the U.S. Constitution's Second Amendment -- the right to bear firearms -- could stop Clinton from nominating liberal justices. Gun rights supporters say a more liberal Supreme Court would accept laws restricting or abolishing ownership of firearms. Some understood Trump's comment to be a call to violence, but his campaign later said he was only trying to rally Second Amendment supporters to vote for him. (AP Video)
